Phylogenetic classification of extant genera of fishes of the order Cypriniformes (Teleostei: Ostariophysi)
Tan, M. and Armbruster, J.W.
The order Cypriniformes is the most diverse order of freshwater fishes. Recent phylogenetic studies have approached a consensus on the phylogenetic relationships of Cypriniformes and proposed a new phylogenetic classification of familylevel groupings in Cypriniformes. The lack of a reference for the placement of genera amongst families has hampered the adoption of this phylogenetic classification more widely. We herein provide an updated compilation of the membership of genera to suprageneric taxa based on the latest phylogenetic classifications. We propose a new taxon: subfamily Esominae within Danionidae, for the genus Esomus. Key words: Cyprinidae, Cobitoidei, Cyprinoidei, carps, minnows
